Ingredients Explained

Masking, Perfuming, Skin Conditioning
Very Disliked

Olea Europaea Fruit Oil is the fixed oil obtained from the ripe fruit of the Olive. In other words - olive oil.

The primary contents of olive oil are glycerides of the fatty acids linoleic, oleic and palmitic.

Olive oil also contains antioxidants such as Vitamin E. Antioxidants may help reduce signs of aging by fighting unstable free-radical molecules. It also contains Vitamins A (retinol), D, and K.

The squalene in olive oil makes it a great emollient. Emollients help soothe and soften your skin by trapping moisture in. This makes olive oil a great skin moisturizer.

Studies show olive oil to have antibacterial and antifungal properties in low concentrations. Another study found olive oil irritated sensitive oily skin. We always recommend speaking with a professional about using this ingredient in your routine.

I feel like this cleansing oil is perfect for those with dryer skin. However, for my sensitive, acne prone skin that leans more towards combination/oily, this oil made me break out. Itโ€™s a very thick formula thatโ€™s hard to wash off, even with a second cleanser. Because of this, I find myself rubbing my face and eyes a lot harder, and scrubbing with a lot more effort than usual. Itโ€™s also made mostly out of olive oil, which tends to break me out, and lead to acne around my jawline. If you like thicker cleansing oils that leave a bit of a moisturizing film, this is good for you. However, if youโ€™re prone to breakouts and prefer a lighter formula, I would skip this one unless you have no other choice.

Non-comedogenic & Shrinks Pores
This is one of the only oil cleansers that doesn't clog my pores. It's really light, feels nice to use, and emulsifies really easily. It cleans pores very well and I've noticed a decrease in pore size while using it, and clearer skin in general. (Note: I can't speak to how well it removes makeup because I'm not really a makeup wearer, but it definitely removes sunscreen well.)
